Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Scarred by his traumatic childhood, Jeremy Keeling found solace working with exotic animals. Now, in his enchanting and touching book, he reveals how he became a mother to an abandoned baby orang-utan called Amy - and how she healed his broken heart..

Jeremy Keeling first met Amy, an orang-utan, when he was looking after the private menagerie of rock n roll music producer Gordon Mills. A friendship was forged that would become the defining relationship of both their lives. One day, when Jeremy was driving along with one-year-old Amy sitting beside him in the passenger seat, he fell asleep at the wheel and caused a horrific car crash. The first policeman on the scene crawled into the wreckage of the upturned car where he was staggered to see a hairy, non-human hand cradling Jeremy s head amid the glass and twisted metal: having been saved by Jeremy, Amy now refused to let him go. For Jeremy, it was to be a long convalescence, but he was able to repay his debt to Amy when he joined forces with Jim Cronin, a tough-talking primate-lover from the Bronx, who shared his vision of creating a sanctuary for abused and abandoned monkeys. Pooling their meagre resources, the two men took on a derelict pig farm in Dorset and, over the next twenty years transformed it into a 65-acre, cage-less sanctuary for beleaguered primates, rescued all over the world. Monkey World is now internationally famous and attracts some 800,000 visitors a year.
Jeremy & Amy is a story of high-wire adventure, of grit and determination and at its heart an inspiring and life-changing relationship between one man and his ape.

Biographie de l'auteur

Jeremy Keeling is the Animal Director of Monkey World in Dorset. He set up the sanctuary in 1987, in partnership with Jim Cronin, and has worked there ever since. Highly regarded for his passion and knowledge, Jeremy has become a cult celebrity through the Monkey Business and Monkey Life television documentaries that have been shown in 87 countries. Married to his fifth wife Lou, he has three children from earlier marriages. Amy, a female orang-utan,(pongo pygmaeus) was born in 1983 on Gordon Mills' estate in Surrey. She was hand-reared by Jeremy Keeling after her mother, Jane, neglected her. She moved with Jeremy to Monkey World in 1987. She gave birth to a son, Gordon, ten years later and still thrives there today.
